Staff report

Due to continued severe rainfall in the Houston area related to Hurricane Harvey, the four-game series between the Sugar Land Skeeters and New Britain Bees beginning today has been relocated to New Britain Stadium.

The Skeeters will serve as the home team for the series, to be played Monday through Wednesday, including a single-admission doubleheader on Tuesday starting at 12:05 p.m.

The series was originally scheduled for Monday through Thursday nights in Sugar Land, Texas, located less than 20 miles from Houston. That area of Texas is currently experiencing record-setting flooding, with rain not expected to let up until later this week.

In lieu of tickets, the Bees are asking any fans who attend the series to donate to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund.

The Bees’ staff will be collecting donations at each game during the series. Fans can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to support the American Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts in Houston and the surrounding area in Texas affected by the hurricane.
